There should be a law protecting you from elder sisters

 Forbid elder sisters is a cartoon by artist an illustrator Artmagenta
They say I look just like my elder sister
and that gives me nightmares!

 Lettter to the editor

I am Christine and I'm 11 years and 4 months old. That indeed makes me responsible for my own actions but despite this I am going to publish this letter.

I love my parents but that shouldn't mean that I have to love my elder sister. I hate my sister! She is just too much. And people say I look just like her! That is unfair an gives me nightmares.

I hereby declines all relationships to my sister and urge all people in position of power to make a law that forbids the existens of elder sisters!

Hoping for a better future,
Yours Christine

What is your worst nightmare?

MIKE:  As a kid I heard the story about the emperor who ordered new clothes and was scammed with no clothes at all. Stupid people cannot see your new beautiful clothes, said the scammers.

No one wants to acknowledge themselves as stupid so when the naked emperor passed, everybody said: Wow, look how beautiful clothes the emperor is wearing!

But he was naked!

And that is my every night nightmare since I was 7 and heard that story for the first time. I see myself walking around in the nude as the stupid emperor did.

What is your favorite dog?

MARION:  My favorite dog is a Maltese. I like small dogs. They should be so small that I can hide them in my clothes. At home in my house, I have ten little dogs and right now I have five or six of them on me, right here, hidden in my clothes.

That's an early bird by force

Are you a night owl or an early bird?

CECILIA: I've got five alarm clocks running with five minutes delay. The first one goes off at 6 o’clock in the morning.
The last one goes of when I am sitting in my car driving to job, just to make sure I don’t fall asleep on the road.

No, I’m not an early bird by habit but by force.

A Picasso for a chameleon

How do you train your pet?

MARY-BETH:   Some people train their pets to obedience. I don't. I want my chameleon to develop his talents, and his best talent is his sense for colors.

Therefore I take Chubby to various art museums and let him study the colors from the best of the best artists. Chubby favors Rubens, the old artists have dusky and easily imitated color scales. Modern artists with plenty of contrasting colors in their pictures are difficult for Chubby.
 A Picasso gives Chubby a nervous breakdown.

Napoleon is his nickname

Nickname Napoleon is a caricature by artist and illustrator Artmagenta
Napoleon or Mathias?

Street Survey
If you could be one person from history who would it be?

MATHIAS:  Ever since I was a little boy, I've looked like Napoleon. When we read about Napoleon in school my classmates discovered that I looked like Napoleon and I was immediately called Napoleon. As usual when you get a nickname you first get annoyed but pretty soon you get used to it and accept it.

Nowadays I feel a strong sense of community with the old Napoleon and sometimes I wonder if I'm not a reincarnation of him.

The real one

A jumping night mare

Jumping from a cliff is a cartoon by artist and illustrator Artmagenta
Cindy, why are you trying to jump?

Street Survey
What is your worst night mare?

CINDY: I have a dream that constantly recurs: I'm standing high on a cliff and prepare myself to do a backwards jump like that from a trampoline.

Then I wake up terrified and soaking with sweat.

I do not know what the dream means, and I do not want to know.
My boyfriend says it is because I'm afraid of losing him!

I will never make that jump so there certainly is no reason to find out what it is about.

Beef, Chicken, or Pork?

My wife always says: Albert! Don’t think, you’ll just get confused
